ELI’s Annual Eastern Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is an overview of environmental law from the top experts in the field. Boot Camp is designed primarily for attorneys and environmental managers new to environmental law, although more experienced professionals have found the course provides an efficient update as well. While the course has a strong legal focus, it is accessible to professionals other than lawyers, including corporate environmental managers, paralegals, and technical staff who would benefit from a more thorough understanding of environmental law.

ELI’s Eastern Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is led by carefully selected senior practitioners and environmental managers who provide a practical and pragmatic view of environmental law and policy issues likely to be encountered by those working in the field. Annual topics include sessions on: NEPA, ESA, CWA, civil and criminal enforcement, TSCA, FIFRA, energy law, CAA, RCRA, CERCLA, due diligence in transactions, and ethics.

Please note: ELI's Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is available only to the member firms and organizations of ELI’s Professional, Corporate, and Public Interest Programs and to individual ELI Associates Program members. Membership status must be current through the month of the course. We encourage early enrollment as space is limited. Those seeking CLE can earn almost 20 hours for a reasonable fee, with special discounts provided to government, academic, and public interest employees.

An ELI & Babst, Calland, Clements and Zomnir, P.C. Co-Sponsored Webinar

The United States is experiencing a wave of state-led clean transportation initiatives that are gaining substantial momentum. Faced with insufficient action on the federal level to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, states are focusing their efforts on the sector that produces the largest percentage of GHG: transportation.

Around the country, states are taking various avenues to curb emissions from the transportation sector. California has adopted low emission limits for light-duty vehicles and targeted transportation segments with new regulations, including the Advanced Clean Trucks Regulation. Other states are setting requirements for transportation network companies (TNCs) to curb emissions. Several states are forming new regional initiatives including the Transportation and Climate Initiative and the Multi-State Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Memorandum of Understanding. Still others are developing charging infrastructure initiatives, expanding the grid to promote electric vehicles, investing in electric vehicle government fleets and rebates for private customers, and more.

Join ELI, Babst Calland, and leading panelists to explore these initiatives, their potential impact, and funding sources. Expert panelists focus on steps state and local governments can take to partner with industry to facilitate increased electric vehicle adoption. Lastly, panelists dive into big issue topics such as the development of robust charging and grid infrastructure, and allowing direct sales to consumers.
